Of all the beaches in the Barra to Playa Linda corridor, this is the most disappointing. Hard to access with all the high rise AIs lining the waterfront. Pretty much zero on the scale of 'does this place have a soul'. And without a wrist...More

Beautiful beach for walks and watching the sunset. The waves are pretty rough, so I wouldn't brave the water if you're not a strong swimmer. There are reasonably priced activities like parasailing, jet skiing and banana boats available.

Love this clean beach. So many activites to entertain while you are exploring this Hotel Zone. No vendors to distract you from enjoying Ixtapa at it's finest.

Most of the hotels, even the all- inclusives, have day rates that you can pay and go in and enjoy the bars and restaurants for a certain time period each day. A few of the beach hotels are not totally all-inclusive and you can go...More

Very nice beach and one of the few open sea beaches where you can swim( at the southern end, near Dorado Pacifico)with relative safety. Need to be very careful though due to riptides and sudden 6 foot waves.
